There are no calculations in this unit—it’s all memorization. I’ve tried my best, but I really doubt that you will find the notes for this unit very useful. The best way to learn organic chemistry is by doing lots and lots of practice. By the end of it, you should be very comfortable classifying, naming, and drawing organic molecules.
What you will find helpful are the study cards that I made for hydrocarbon derivatives, the independent part of the unit. These will hopefully help you memorize all the different functional groups and their properties.
